John the gardener

We like our house & our garden in unfashionable but relatively affordable lower Claremont. Here's an LA Times piece about the gardener who designed the front yard (but didn't get his hands too dirty with the work putting it in, although I think he did most of the planting at his own place). A bit of a self-promoter? Sure, like any businessman who stays alive. But the garden at his Pomona location really was a wonderland. (The photo gallery is worth a look, but doesn't really do it justice.)
